The leader will have a true finale in San Mamés. And it is that for him Atlético de Madrid there are no more days but finals. In front you will have a Athletic who comes to the game after having lost two finals of Copa del Rey in two weeks and has five consecutive draws in the league. That is why they see this meeting as an opportunity to redeem themselves.
In the squad of SimeoneNow the good news is pouring in. One of them is the return of Luis Suarez, Lemar Y Joao Felix. The star signings of the rojiblanco team in the last three years. The big question is whether the Cholo It will make room for them after the good performance given by the eleven that he took out against him Eibar and the Huesca. They have achieved two wins in a row for the first time since January.
An alignment that will have to change due to force majeure. Gimenez will be dropped due to accumulation of warnings Handsome Y Philip are the options that the Cholo for that position. Two important centers that will have the objective of adding the third game in a row with a clean sheet, something that has not happened in the entire second round. The rest of the defense will consist of Trippier Y I gave it on the sides with Savic in the middle. While Oblak will continue in the goal.
In the core there will be more doubts. We will see if the Cholo keeps to Herrera, Koke Y Saul or prefer to enter Lemar instead of the Elche. And that the “8” mattress is improving his level.
On the attack line they are playing Marcos Llorente placeholder image Y Carrasco on the wings that seem fixed. And the big question is whether he will replace strap in the center or bet on the return of Luis Suarez. In the event that it includes the Uruguayan, it cannot be ruled out that Ángel delays his demarcation.
Opposite will be a Athletic Bilbao who comes to the game in full depression after losing a historic chance to win two King’s Cups in a month. Two defeats that have weighed heavily on a squad that in LaLiga has almost no goals because they are very far from Europe, 11 points, and nine from relegation. Maybe that’s why they add five draws in a row.
A match in which Marcelino will not be able to count on three key players: Muniain, Yeray Y Yuri. The good news will be the highs of Cap and Íñigo Martínez. In this way the eleven could be formed by Simón in goal; Cap, Nuñez, Inigo and Balenziaga behind; Williams, Dani García, Unai and Berenguer in the medullary; and at the top would be Raúl García and Villalibre.
